Apparently, without me ever having heard about it, glass noodles have already had contamination problems in the past -- companies have used toxic whiteners to make noodles that were made mostly from cornstarch look like (much more expensive) mung bean flour noodles. In one case, it was lead. In anothercase, an industrial bleach. These were in '04 and '06. How come this didn't make the US news? These products are on our shelves, in the international foods sections of numerous grocery stores, and in ethnic markets like Ranch 99!
Does anybody know a US-made brand of glass noodles? They're yummy with stir fry.
